Jisshu Sengupta will star opposite Vidya Balan in Shakuntala Devi - Human Computer. He will be essaying Shakuntala Devi’s husband, Paritosh Bannerji, an IAS officer from Kolkata. The film also stars Sanya Malhotra and Amit Sadh. 

A popular Bengali actor, Jisshu has appeared in the Hindi films Barfi!, Piku and Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Incidentally, earlier this year, Jisshu and Vidya were co-stars in the Telugu film, N.T.R: Kathanayakudu

Speaking about his new venture, Jisshu says, “I am thrilled to be a part of Shakuntala Devi - Human Computer, and to play the role of Paritosh Banerjee. We have started shooting my parts for the film, and I have already shot some lovely scenes. Working with Vidya is always so much fun.”

Shakuntala Devi was an Indian writer and mental calculator whose arithmetic skills earned her a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records. She also authored the book The World of Homosexuals, considered to be the first study of homosexuality in India. 

The biopic on Shakuntala Devi is directed by Anu Menon. The film is slated for release in Summer 2020.
